Lie-detector test spots conflict in Mufti Abdul Qavi’s statements


LAHORE: The polygraph test, or lie-detector test, has spotted conflict in Mufti Abdul Qavi’s statements in connection with the investigation of social media sensation Qandeel Baloch’s cold-blooded murder.

The four-hour-long test was held in Lahore on Thursday and Qavi was questioned regarding his contacts with Qandeel Baloch and her brothers.

Qavi, on several occasions, had dismissed allegations of involvement in Qandeel’s murder but the lie-detector machine pointed out several errors in his claim.

According to a report, suspicions against Qavi have augmented after the polygraph test whereas some immoral videos, found in Qavi’s mobile, have also been detected and deleted.

Qandeel was strangled to death in July-2016 by her brother Wasim for honour.

“Yes of course, I strangled her,” Wasim told reporters at a press conference.

“She was on the ground floor while our parents were asleep on the roof top,” he continued. “It was around 10.45 pm when I gave her a tablet and then killed her.”

Wasim said he had acted alone.
